Being a kid on a summer evening means, of course, catching fireflies…followed by realizing your brother just got permission to walk around the block to check out the rabbits he’d spotted earlier that day and he better not leave without you!
It has taken us an embarrassingly long time to give the kids regular chores, mainly because teaching them to do things well is tedious; however, the time has come! It’s good and necessary for them on multiple levels, and…Alek and I are sick of doing it all ourselves!
More hydrangea pics…because I love them.
Our flower beds are currently bursting with gardenias (well, this corner at least), and it smells heavenly every time I walk by.
More paddle boarding pics…
The kids and Logan loved paddling around together.
Guess who found out he can swim…and is very happy about it?!
